UNW Collective Agreement

Article 38 - Contracting Out

38.01The Employer will give all reasonable consideration to continued employment in the Public Service of employees who would otherwise become redundant because work is contracted out.
38.02The Employer will seek the views of the Union before finalizing any plans to contract out work, which would or could result in employees becoming redundant. The Employer agrees to provide information, including the rationale, relevant to the work that is being reviewed for the potential of contracting out. If the Union provides its views in writing fifteen (15) days of the date the Employer formally advises of the intention to contract out work, the Employer will provide a formal response prior to finalizing its plans. The timeline may be extended by mutual consent of the parties and such request will not be unreasonably denied.
